Look for the level of the "PCM" part.  I have an HD audio and I had to make 
that channel the "master" because it also has a "LFE" channel that was not 
controlled by the normal "Master"  Once I turned, "Master" and "LFE" to the 
max I could use the PCM to control the volume.  The only problem I have is 
now I can't "mute" the sound.
